The fine loess soil of the Yellow River basin quickly established that region as the home of China's earliest recorded dynasty. This program focuses primarily on Bronze Age China and the contributions of the Yin (or Shang) dynasty, with a tangential emphasis on the reign of the Qins. Utilizes: archival film of the excavation of Yinxu, footage of armor and artifacts from the tomb of Qin Shihuangdi, footage of loess being used to replicate intricate Yin-era bronzes, and 3-d computer animation.
